Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is defined as a lung infection that is due to mechanical or artificial ventilation (breathing) of patients in the intensive care unit. In order for a patient to have VAP he/she must be on a ventilator machine.
VAP can be prevented by following accepted preventive practices when caring for patients on ventilators.
